On the first Friday of every month there’s a great opportunity for you to test your knowledge with our monthly Quiz. You can make up teams of eight, but we will always try and find you a space if you come whatever your numbers. It’s a great opportunity to meet your friends or meet new ones especially if you are new to the club. You can invite friends or family who are not members to join you although the six visits a year rule does apply here.
Some popular quiz events, such as the Christmas quiz, may be restricted to members only as they can get very busy. There is a very small charge to cover the cost of prizes and the people on the door are always ready to help you find a table or another team to join!
The evening kicks off with supper from the galley for those who want it from around 6.00pm, table top puzzles are handed out about 7pm and the quiz properly starts around 7.30pm. You can usually guarantee your team a table if you come early, we do have a maximum of 12 tables in the Solent Room, but can accommodate an overflow into the Martineau Room now!
The format of the evening involves the table tops, 4 rounds before a drinks break and four rounds after. The grand finale being the points tot up. Prizes for the winner and runner up (although, by tradition, the runner up does have to share the sweets with the rest of the room!)
Even better if you ever fancied being a Quizmaster we’d love to meet you! Some people have done it regularly and would like to pass the baton on to new blood! It really isn’t that daunting a task, you just have to be prepared for a bit of heckling from the audience!
Come and give it a try…….
